The Tao of Politics

One of my main concerns is: how can I make a difference? There are thousands of political blogs out there. It’s easy to get lost in that ocean. So I may blog about politics on occasion, or I may blog about health issues, depending on where my interests lead me, and where I feel I can contribute something of significance.

Maybe they're delusional??

Do Marco and his supporters really believe limited govt, free enterprise &strong Nat'l Defense will cure the problems of the disadvantaged?

I started a joke...

here is something that is possible: Donald Trump’s candidacy is part of a plan to undermine the Republican party, and drive his fellow candidates to take such extreme positions that the will be unelectable in the Fall. I mean, that’s what’s happening isn’t it? One recent example is that Trump has forced certain candidates today to take positions against the Pope. I’ve been thinking something like this for awhile. I remember that he had a lunch or phone call with Bill Clinton some time ago, and I would not be surprised if Trump’s candidacy were hatched then. I think Trump will drop out of the race eventually, and leave the GOP in such shambles (Mitch McConnell et al are unwittingly contributing to all this) that they will be a national joke, and Hillary Clinton will be elected. It’s possible.

Hillary's Qualifications

It just occurred to me... Rubio and Cruz are both first term Senators, right? And there's been some discussion about Hillary's qualifications to be President, but: Hillary was elected to two terms in the Senate, and she supposedly ran the State Department for four years. These are not trivial items on her resume. Like many women, perhaps she left lucrative jobs to be a mother and wife (first lady of Arkansas, and FLOTUS) but she went to Wellesley and Yale, so she's well educated, and was employed at various times in her youth, so when you speak of qualifications, or lack thereof, certainly Hillary has plenty. Fox News and the GOP will say anything to try and delegitimize her.
